CGB - Universidad Mayor | English CGB - Universidad Mayor | English
The CGB is made up of groups of scientists who work on specific biological problems, with a main axis that is based on the knowledge obtained from the interrogation and study of the properties of genomes. Research topics include the elucidation of regulatory networks that control plant response to environmental conditions, the molecular basis of the interaction between beneficial and pathogenic organisms and their hosts, and the development of algorithms and models of biological networks to integrate large amounts of data of genomic origin, in order to obtain relevant information and be able to predict the functioning and response of organisms to various conditions. The Center houses groups made up of researchers at different stages of their careers, including today about 50 people including academics, postdoctoral fellows, undergraduate and graduate students, professionals and technicians. CGB researchers have diverse backgrounds and specialties, both in the biological, bioinformatics, informatics, health, and agronomy areas, among others, creating a highly multidisciplinary work environment. CGB research is supported by national and international competitive projects, as well as internal funds from the Universidad Mayor. Within our projects we have funding from the ANID-FONDECYT program (postdoctoral FONDECYT, FONDECYT initiation in research, regular FONDECYT), ANID-Millennium Scientific Initiative -hosting the Millennium Institute of Integrative Biology iBio-, ANID-Anillo as well as ANID-PCI funds -Collaboration Networks between Research Centers, and ANID-FONDEF, among others.
